The Duchess of Malfi and Other Plays - John Webster

5.1: Bracciano and Vittoria are married. Francisco (disguised as a Moor) and co-conspiritors enter the household  under false pretenses. It is revealed that Flamineo dallied with Zanche, Vittoria's Moorish servant but is now trying to escape a promise of marriage to her. Zanche has, in turn, fallen in love with "Mulinasar" (Francisco's fake persona). Marcello still disapproves of his younger brother, Flamineo.
